The Schools in Sweden

SWEDEN. The school system is failing and there's many reasons why.

Christians Mistreated for Their Faith

SWEDEN. Let's get personal. As a Catholic in Sweden I'm a minority (yey, victimhood-status!) and so are my children. Most doesn't care a bit about that more than that Christians might be considered a bit kookey. But when my kid read about Catholicism in religion-class in school the teacher mentioned that it used to be... Continue Reading →

Integration in the UK

UK. This video is interesting, but when it comes to the class in the end it's predictable. The teacher said that you can keep your identity and become British, but how do you do when those identities clash? Like when your culture say that you must have an arranged marriage at 13 while British girls... Continue Reading →

USA. The Catholic Theological Union in Chicago will be having a summer course called Islam, Muslims & Islamophobia: A Catholic Response aimed to improve Muslim-Christian relations.  The teacher who will be teaching the course is Scott C.

A primary School with Fights & Knives

SWEDEN. Almost 30 000 lives in the municipality of Gislaved, but even in such a small town there's worrying trends. In the school named after the flower cowslip (what an ugly name!

Politicians Are Creating Conflicts

SWEDEN. I suspect that the politicians have a secret agenda to cause conflicts. It must be the case that they want racism. Why else would they do stuff like this? In Järfälla they decided that high school students shouldn't be allowed to get a free bus card to use to get to school anymore. So... Continue Reading →

Should Millennials Be allowed to Write?

USA. Take a look at this editorial by a young, black woman from a student newspaper. It's racist and sexistic, but that wasn't what I reacted to. When you ask a question at a lecture, is it secretly just your opinion ending with the phrase “do you agree?” If so, your name is something like... Continue Reading →

Life as a Swedish Boy

SWEDEN. This is a translation of a FB post by headmaster Ingwar Blomster. In 2007 he said in an interview that girls should change their clothes and behaviour so boys from other cultures doesn't get the wrong impression and harrass them. Idiotic, but this is still interesting: The focus is often on how girls are subjected to rapes by "foreigners". Sometimes and often does Swedish boys have a very hard time. I have been a principle for many years and if a Swedish boy say something to a... Continue Reading →
